A great group of NPS staff stopped by the resort this morning and met briefly with Tom before venturing up lake for a tour of campgrounds, and the natural resources/features surrounding the lake.
Rosemary Seifried is leading the group of park rangers, backcountry rangers, information specialists, and staff from North Cascades National Park Headquarters, and from offices in Stehekin, Newhalem, and Marblemount.
Tom gave an overview of resort operations, services provided, and a description of the water taxi operation.
There is a very good and strong partnership existing between The National Park Service, Seattle City Light and Ross Lake Resort which results in a wonderful experience for all of us that venture to North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake National Recreation Area and Ross Lake Resort.
